2022 Client Registration Update:

Applications for assistance for the 2022 Christmas season will be available starting in October.  Check back for the link to the online registration system.  We are hopeful that we will be able to return to parent shopping in the Toy Depot in 2022, however please ensure you do complete the wish list section of the application form just in case the ongoing COVID19 pandemic requires us to pre-pack toy hampers again this year.  Be as specific as possible with your child’s wish list and we will do our very best to make their Christmas dreams come true. Thank you!

Donation Information:

Financial donations are needed year round to support our Hamper program.  In 2021, our Hamper Program provided almost $190,000 in grocery vouchers to families in need.  This translates to 21,102 meals for 7,034 family members!  Please consider supporing this essential program with a one time gift or make a monthly donation via the Donate Now link below.  Thank you so much!

Please note we do not have a physical facility open year round to accept toy donations.  Drop offs to Surrey Fire Halls are also closed for the season. If you do have surplus toys you would like to donate, consider reaching out to your local elementary school Strong Start program, the Surrey Women’s Centre or the Maxxine Wright Second Stage Program.  We look forward to seeing you again with your toy donations in November 2022!

If a financial donation is not possible at this time, please keep in mind that from time to time we also need help in practical matters such as trucking, the loan of equipment, web site development etc.  If you or your company has resources that you think could be helpful to our work, please get in touch!

To give is to gain.

Our community certainly gains a lot every Christmas, thanks to you!
